Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAY 13, 2010
22oz bottle. Brilliant gold with a creamy, medium-sized white head. The aroma is fruity and sweet with prominent apricot and tangerine backed by frosting sweetness and a touch of oaky white wine. The flavor has a sweet candied pils malt thing going on with a touch of vinous character that manifests in alcohol and oak. Big orange fruitiness. Sweet and lightly syrupy in the finish, but light in body overall with lively carbonation. Somewhat interesting but too sweet and orange-dominated ovaral.
